Sedation Dentistry, Sedation Dentist, Dental Anxiety
Dental phobia is a problem that affects millions of people. Depending on your level of anxiety, you may delay visits to the dentist or avoid treatment altogether.
At Tysons Dentistry, we value your oral health, and we know that you do, too. We combine compassion and understanding of your concerns with advanced sedation dentistry to help ease your fears so you can take control of your own oral health.
All the Support You Require to Relax
If you’ve had an unpleasant dental experience in the past, it may be impossible to believe that dental treatment can be a comfortable, stress-free experience. Ongoing fear of dental work is a very understandable reaction to this type of experience.
We realize that this fear can dominate your thoughts as you approach any dental treatment, and our team will walk you through your treatment process, taking the time necessary to answer your questions. We are your support team throughout dental treatment.
Sedation Options to Fit Your Needs
Using state-of-the-art sedation methods, we will help you achieve a state of deep relaxation, making it possible for you to have your dental procedure without feeling a thing. Your sedation treatment will be custom-tailored to fit your procedure, treatment timeline, and comfort level.
Nitrous oxide – Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, is very effective for many patients with dental phobia. If you experience mild anxiety, nitrous oxide will help you achieve a state of gentle relaxation during your procedure.
There are no side effects with nitrous oxide, and once we stop administering the gas, you will be able to resume your normal activities – a great benefit for busy families and professionals who need to return to work!
Oral sedation – If you experience debilitating dental anxiety, we suggest oral sedation. For many people, anticipation of the dental visit may be more stressful than the treatment itself. To alleviate this pre-treatment anxiety, Dr. Sanati or Dr. Shahram will prescribe a calming medication to be taken about an hour before your appointment.
You will arrive at our office in a calm state, and a member of our professional team will be by your side throughout the procedure to make sure you are completely comfortable. We can combine oral sedation with nitrous oxide to ensure that you have a completely stress-free experience.
Maximize Your Time in the Dentist’s Chair
Using sedation dentistry, our dentists are often able to complete more dental treatments in a shorter period of time. If you have multiple dental problems that need to be addressed, talk to our dental team about whether our sedation dentistry methods are appropriate for the type of treatments you need.
